Bibliography InformationHitchcock, Roswell D. "Entry for 'Magbish'". "An Interpreting Dictionary of Scripture Proper Names".
(congregating ), a proper name in ( Ezra 2:30 ) but whether of a man or of a place is doubtful; probably the latter, as all the names from ( Ezra 2:20 ) to 34, except Elam and Harim, are names of places.
mag'-bish (maghbish; Septuagint:
Codex Vaticanus Magebos; Codex Alexandrinus Maabeis): An unidentified town in Benjamin, 156 of the inhabitants of which are said to have returned from exile with Zerubbabel (Ezra 2:30). It does not appear in Nehemiah's list (Nehemiah 7:33). Septuagint (Codex Vaticanus), however, has Magebos. The name is probably identical with Magpiash, "one who sealed the covenant" (Nehemiah 10:20).
